Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I recently found out that I am pregnant, but I have so much pain in the lower part of my stomach. I throw up everything I eat and pass stools (even if I do not feel so). The pain is extreme, and I do not know what to do. Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern and I will definitely help you regarding this issue.

It is important to consult your healthcare provider as soon as possible regarding the pain and symptoms that you are experiencing during pregnancy. They will be able to provide you with the best guidance and appropriate medical care. In the meantime, here are a few suggestions that may help alleviate some of your discomfort:

  1. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of fluids in small, frequent sips to prevent dehydration, especially if you are vomiting frequently. Opt for drinking water, clear broths, or electrolyte-rich drinks.
  2. Eat small, frequent meals: Instead of having large meals, try consuming smaller portions throughout the day. This can help reduce the risk of nausea and vomiting.
  3. Choose bland, easy-to-digest foods: Stick to plain foods such as crackers, toast, rice, or yogurt that are less likely to trigger nausea and are gentle on the stomach.
  4. Avoid triggers: Identify any specific foods or smells that worsen your nausea or vomiting and try to avoid them if possible.
  5. Consider ginger: Ginger, in various forms like ginger tea, ginger candies, or ginger capsules, may help relieve nausea in some individuals. However, it is always best to check with your healthcare provider before trying any herbal remedies during pregnancy.

Remember to prioritize your health and communicate openly with your healthcare provider about your symptoms. They will be able to assess your situation and provide the most appropriate advice and treatment options. If the pain becomes severe or if you experience any other worrying symptoms, do not hesitate to seek immediate medical attention.

I wish you healthy and happy times ahead.

Thank you.
